Thieves Forrest is a technical downhill course at Deer Valley Resort. It's quite a bit easier than Fireswamp. If you want to ride some gnarly natural downhill but you're sick of groomed berms and jumps, this is your trail. It connects with Fire Swamp at both ends and makes a killer run. The trail features roots, drops, and loose sections. Protective gear is recommended.

Sweet technical descent. Plenty of spots to go head over heels, but keep your head up and roll or huck! Not quite a intense as Fireswamp.

 Only road upper section so won’t give a rating, but beware of tight turns through loose (and buried) shark fins that is pretty rough. More fun I’m sure if you are a really technical rider and can keep speed through the type of tight/droppy/rough terrain. Personally, much preferred the lower sections of Fire Swamp.
